Put down the knife

Put down the knife another day is coming
No more red drops and keep life going
Battle scars are worse in the heart, I know
Don't let them on your skin, don't let it show
What I'm asking you is please be strong
Don't let the hardships of life make you lump

The universe is built on great things
Just open your eyes and see
The blue sky and the sun reflecting on your skin
And the sound of the ocean playing in your ears
So put down the knife because life keeps going
No more red drops no more slices coming
